Have you enrolled in classes yet?

Here are some tips to consider:

1.  Enroll today…like right now!  Even if you missed your enrollment date and time, it is NOT TOO LATE to enroll in classes for Spring.  But, don’t wait any longer…waiting another week – or even another day – can make a big difference with your schedule.  For example, the College Writing course that had 10 seats open this morning can easily fill up by the afternoon.

2.  When you log onto eServices, is the word “HOLD” written boldly inside of a red hexagon?  If so, that means exactly what it says…you have a “hold” that must be cleared before you can enroll into classes.  Most likely, you forgot to complete the “Supplemental Enrollment Form” which must be updated every semester.  If you have already submitted that form and you still see that darn hexagon, then you have another “hold” that must be cleared.  It could be a library fine, a financial aid hold, a dismissal, or an overdue payment.  If you need assistance, please go to the Admissions and Records Office located in Rodda North or to the eServices Lab in Business Building 153.

3.  Be flexible with your schedule.  Consider taking classes in the morning, afternoon, evening, or even the weekends.  But, only enroll into classes that you know you can attend for the next 16 weeks!  For example, if you decide to take a class at 7:00 in the morning, you must be able to make it to class on time…and then stay awake!  And, as you consider all options for creating your schedule, be aware of how often a class will meet and in the format that it will be taught.  Some classes are “hybrid” classes where there is both in-class and online learning.  In this case, you will be required to use the internet to submit some assignments.

4.  SCC’s main campus is beautiful…but don’t forget about the Davis Center and West Sacramento Center!  Both centers offer a wide range of general education courses including Math and English.  If you plan to attend both the main campus and one of the outreach centers, make sure that you give yourself plenty of travel time to get from one location to another.  As you are browsing through the class schedule, you will see the words “SCC Main,” “Davis Center,” or “West Sac” to indicate the location of the class.  Don’t get lost on the first day of the semester because you can’t find the “Davis Center” on the main campus…you will have to actually drive to the city of Davis to find it.
